XSS? You mean Cross-site scripting (XSS)?

Let's see... a quick definition from Wikipedia...
Cross-site scripting holes are web-application vulnerabilities which allow attackers to bypass client-side security mechanisms normally imposed on web content by modern browsers.

No, as far as I know, Forumotion forums can't be hacked and are secure.

I wouldn't go so far as to say unhackable, but most of the time people get "hacked" because they don't protect their password, not because their forum has security holes. Forumotion's pretty secure.

If i recall right most cases of XSS attacks come from if you use scripts from other sites that host bad code. For example you may have ads on your site from a 3rd party that has malware in it.

so on your site you have a couple of widgets from game monitor.com and megaupload.com who may leave you open to a vulnerability if either sites have security holes. so it's up to you to decide if they are trustworthy.

I'd say in your case I think you're pretty safe. But it's always worth being careful about what content you include from other sites. Smile
